Bulls have confirmed World Cup winning former South African coach Jake White as new director of rugby.

White has signed a contract until the end of the 2023 season and will replace Alan Zondagh, who left the role earlier this year.

The 56-year-old took in charge of South Africa in 2004 after coaching the Under 21 side and guided the Boks to World Cup victory in 2007. He also has experience of coaching Brumbies, Sharks, Montpellier and Toyota Verblitz apart from being a technical advisor to Tonga.

Blue Bulls Company chief executive Alfonso Meyer said the club is excited to have the services of White.

"We are extremely excited with Jake’s decision to join us. His credentials speak for itself and we know his contributions are only going to improve our rugby across the board," said Meyer.

"Jake’s appointment is yet another step in the right direction as we endeavour to take this brand into a new era. We wish him well in his new role".
